I've been making up stories since I was five years old, and now I'm thrilled to be able to do it as a full-time job. I have an obsession with dark fantasy, dystopian futures, and Pride and Prejudice-style love stories full of witty banter and sizzling, unspoken feelings. When I'm not writing, I'm creating digital art, reading funny blogs, or watching my favorite shows (which include TVD and BSG). I live with my geeky husband and our two bad cats in Atlanta, GA.

Hi all!

Good news. I have a title, a cover, and a (sort of) release timetable for you.

Book #6 in the Kingmakers' War, the saga of Kael and Briand and Jehn and all of the rest of our lovely group of misfits, is almost here!



A Court of Lies!

I think I said somewhere awhile ago that it would be called A Court of Rags, which 1) didn't end up quite fitting the symbolism of the story and 2) I forgot... Read more of this blog post »

" I emailed you, Tony! "
More of Kate's books…
“I’d allowed myself to feel love –yes, love– for another person in a way I’d once sworn to myself I never would. I’d become completely vulnerable, and now I’d been torn apart with hurt and catapulted onto a path I might never have taken otherwise. I’d risked my life for an outsider. For a stranger. Worse, I had a feeling I was going to do it again.”
Kate Avery Ellison, Frost

“In answer to a question you asked me not a long ago, a question I didn’t answer at the time…it is worth it. Love is a perilous dance too, you see. And if we stop dancing, we’ll die.
Don’t ever stop dancing.”
Kate Avery Ellison, Frost

“What about you? What do you do?” I needed to ask questions, draw him out. I needed to find out all the information I could. My voice sounded strong and smooth, but my hands were shaking. I put them in my lap so he couldn’t see.
“I prey on innocent villagers and terrify their children,” he said with a nasty smile. “And sometimes when I’m feeling really evil, I read books or paint.”
Kate Avery Ellison, The Curse Girl
